Oral sex risk
      #35435 - 06/09/02 07:04 PM

Hey guys im female and performed oral sex on a guy a few weeks ago. I read that the risk is increased if one has bleeding gums. well i recently had a root canal done and the gums around the tooth have been sore and a little dry blood on the gums around the tooth. i had the root canal done 4 days before this incident. even if my gums were still sore and looked like they HAD been bleeding a little bit, would they be weak enough for precum to infect me? or would it have healed to where it prevented infection? please i know your not all dentists or experts but i need your opinions.. thanks

Why dont you take an HIV test after 12 weeks. Whether or not your gums were sore you did have unprotected oral sex and you were the giving party. I would test.

Well your risk is certainly greater than someone who hadn't had root canal 4 days earlier. Certainly if you still seeing dried blood your gums probably were still inflamed.

However, since it was only pre-cum and oral sex is considered lower risk the odds are your risk is still very low. The other factor is the fact the guy you were with probably isn't even infected.

T.i.a.d.
